I just purchased the PGE6.0 last week. I have not installed a patch. I should have the latest s/w, correct?

Concerning presets, what should I be looking for?

My main workflow right now is to apply an edge to a photo, tweak it a little, then save that as a Layer Preest. I then load that layer preset on subsequent photos I need to edit. The program crashes when I apply my created preset or when I apply an effect such as an edge or tab, etc....

There is no consistent action that I perform when the program crashes. It is very random, but very frequent.

Thanks so much,
Angela

Thanks for finding that post for me! I recalled making it but hadn't sought it out yet.

After making an "as is" backup copy, I just did some cleanup in my own PGE>Dreamsuite>Effects Presets folder (where there was much duplication of files).

I found my earlier advice to still be true: In Photographic Edges, avoid the presets on the left of the interface and use the Layer Presets button at the top of the interface. At the moment I am using the plug-ins under Photoshop CS4 on a PPC Mac, OS-X 10.5.5, 1.5 gigs RAM.

Dreamsuite does not give you the secondary option but presets seem to be stable.

I also fired up Mystical Tint Tone & Color. Combining several effects from each of these plug-ins allows you to create some quite contemporary results, even though the original plug-ins are "ancient".

See a quick example I just created while testing .
